According to studies conducted by the United Nations, building construction and usage account for 40%, 25% and 40% of total global consumption of energy, water resources and other resources, respectively; furthermore, greenhouse gases emitted by buildings account for one third of total global greenhouse gas emission, indicating that buildings are among the most critical points for implementing energy conservation and carbon reduction.
As ASE continues to grow and expand our production capacity, our operational environmental footprint has proportionately increased. In order to achieve sustainable growth, ASE stayed focused on reducing operational environmental footprint by enhancing resource efficiency and reducing emissions of pollutants.
Green buildings not only provide a healthier and more comfortable working environment for our employees, but also are concrete illustrations of our dedication to sustainable operations. Through using and passing through the green buildings daily, we expect ASE’s employees to not only recognize ASE’s determination to realize the vision of sustainable business, but also improve their understanding of sustainable development as well as bring sustainability into their lives, deepening all employees’ awareness for sustainability.
Green buildings refer to buildings that meet the environmental-friendly criteria and achieve effective use of resources in all phases of their lifetime, including site selection, design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and even demolition. Both existing and new buildings can be certified with green building label.
Sponge (Breathable) Road -JW Eco-Technology: High load-bearing structure type of permeable concrete pavements are filled in breathable plastic conduit frames. Breathable pipes are densely distributed on the surface layer and are linked to the coarse materials in the bottom to provide excellent breathability, permeability, water retention and water storage.
In addition to leading by example and committing to reducing environmental footprint of our own operation, as the leading independent provider of semiconductor manufacturing services in assembly and test, we aim to maximize our positive influence by sharing our experience and success on green building development.
Through participation at local and international symposiums, collaboration with industry organizations and cross-visits to other green buildings, we aim to learn and share more information and expertise on how to design a brand new green building or transform existing buildings into green buildings.
